New Delhi’s first Formula 1 race track will occupy a sprawling complex on 700
acres. The site includes a 5.4 kilometer race track and 2,100-meter grandstand
with a wave-shaped roof. The goal of this project was to design the first
phase of a 640-meter-long hanging cantilever-type roof with minimum risk and
maximum cost economy.
Constructure Designs used STAAD.Pro for modeling and analysis of the entire
structural system and saved a significant amount of time by expediting repeated
tasks and frequently updating of design information. STAAD.Pro also saved
significant costs in terms of the weight of steel because the design approach
optimized the size and depth of the sections.

Hotel Quaram Square
The 210-room Hotel Quaram Square is located 10 kilometers from the New Delhi
airport. As part of a 500,000-square-foot shopping and entertainment complex, the
hotel is 200,000 square feet over 12 floors. The architectural plan for the hotel was
revised after the first floor was cast, and a major challenge in constructing the
$56 million structure was accommodating this and other revisions.
STAAD.Pro was critical to planning the structure, adding new elements,
managing the many design revisions required, and maintaining the aesthetics.
More than 40 analyses were run on STAAD.Pro before the design was finalized
and approved. The optimization process saved significant costs in terms of the
weight of steel used in the structure.
